Gagarin Park, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk

(3.9/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
One of the largest of its kind in the Russian Far East, Gagarin Park offers you a wealth of opportunities for enjoying the great outdoors of Sakhalin Island. Covering 89 hectares (220 acres), the park boasts lush vegetation, lakes and ponds, playgrounds, and a number of other attractions suitable for kids and adults alike. Go for a stroll along the network of footpaths that crisscross the area or, for a little more exertion, lace up your running shoes and hit the pavement. Alternatively, you can rent a paddleboat from one of the athletic and outdoor facilities that dot the park and get a new perspective of the area from the water. Don't miss hopping aboard one of the park's miniature trains, which make for quick transportation as well as a kind of unofficial tour. Use our Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk trip itinerary builder to add Gagarin Park and other attractions to your Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk vacation plans.

  • Great Park with a vast territory, a big lake with boat station and railroad. It was during the winter and train rides were not working, but the attractiveness of the place a little. On the frozen lake was two snow slides with broad rays, which can slide simultaneously on two or more people. By the Lake of ice and snow were established figures of the heroes of the popular animated film about three bogatyrs. Snowy shapes I have not previously where not seen. Snow cleared trails cut through the Park gives you the opportunity to wander in silence or go for a stroll in a noisy company.

  • Perhaps the only — this green area in the city. Very suitable for walks, there are lyzherollernaja trail, which perhaps goes/goes around the entire city. Recommend.
